Beautiful photography is worth an investment. Cheap photography isn’t good and good photography isn’t cheap. Your newborn will only be this little once and unfortunately there are no re-dos. When doing your research on which newborn photographer to choose please don’t compare on prices! There will always be cheaper options. Always hire the ones with more experiense and higher quality work.
There’s an art to newborn photography and all custom photography, really. It’s not the number of pictures you’re paying for. It’s the hours spent on the entire process that you are paying for. Pre-session communication with you to discuss details, contract signing, invoicing, and scheduling, Tentative styling of the session. The actual session is anywhere from 2-6 hours depending on the package you choose. The studio has to be cleaned afterwards, fabrics sanitized and all props put back up. I spend anywhere from 2- 8 hours of downloading, culling and editing your images.
Your baby is just a few days old and your photographer will be the one handling, posing, wrapping, soothing, lifting..etc. You can’t trust just anyone to do that. I always do whats best and safest for your baby. I take time to gently pose your baby, so that not only does your newborn look peaceful, but actually comfortable. I am patient. I pay attention to the little details because in the end the little things makes a huge difference. I take the time to make sure each pose is perfected before capturing a picture. Each photograph you get from me is a piece of art. I know and understand light, angles and posing. I understand Photoshop and only use it to enhance, not change your image. You’re getting years of experience. When you see your images on the gallery, you’ll be happy you’ve spent the time you did in my studio.
In today’s modern world, clients love having their images in digital format. This allows for unlimited printing at your leisure and the availability of having your digital files forever. The digital is the original piece of art, it belongs to the photographer. Digital files are the one of the highest priced items because once I sell you the files, I lose any future sales from that session.
I hope this gives you a better understanding of the price of newborn photography. These moments are priceless. I assure you I'm one of the best newborn photographers in Austin Texas and worth the investment!
